OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

After hearing the weather report for the week, getting out to the course and seeing the conditions and knowing how much the warmer weather will effect the course the format for the tournament will be as follows:

1st round everyone will play longs
2nd round everyone will play shorts.

The crushed limestone tees for the longs are below grade for the most part and with the thaw coming will be extremely sloppy, if not under water. Hopefully, by playing from the first round we can finish before the sun heats up the course too much. I believe that 2 rounds from those tees will do more damage than good when the PD has been nice enough to get those tees in before the freeze last winter. If you would like to see those limestone tees become concrete, there is a $5 50/50 CTP to help raise funds to make this happen!

Not to mention there will be free STARBUCKS coffee all day as well!

And for those who wanna save a few bucks by preregistering, you may send payment to me via mail at:

Who ever said that there is no reason to join a disc golf club? Thanks to Discontinuum, The First Rites of Spring will have 6 rubber fly pads to help alleviate the effects of the spring thaw.
The holes that will be affected will be hole 1, 3, 4, 15, 16, and 17/18.
These will have the fly pads installed with the teepad for 17 and 18 becoming 1 tee pad for both holes.
This should help to make the tee areas not only much more playable, but safe as well.

Thanks again Discontinuum for once again helping to promote the sport!!!

So since so many things have changed about the layout, format and whatnot, here are a few more things to be aware of for this weekend:

OB

hole 1)  on/ over the tracks
hole 2) on/ over the tracks
hole 3) over the fence
hole 4) over the fence, where the fence ends, the curb is ob line (there are flags from fence line to curb denoting OB line)
hole 16) on/ over path
temp hole A (if needed) on over path to the right

MANDOS
hole 6) must throw to the right of the tree with the yellow ribbon (drop zone to the right of the tree marked by flags)
hole 17) must throw to the right of the tree (drop zone to the right of the tree marked by flags)

Hole 6 mando was added due to tree trimming creating a path that goes in a direct line with long tee for hole seven (safety issue)

I wish I could make it but I'm still getting over the last three of months working on the J-Town charity.
It's too bad more from FVM couldn't make it to J-Town's Fund Raiser.

Sorry to hear that Frank, I would have liked to be down there as well, but was up in Wisconsin for the weekend for a family get together.
2 points to consider, however,
The economy sucks, plain and simple. Not everyone can afford to do multiple tourneys in the same month, much less 2 weeks apart.
J town was a PDGA tourney. A large majority of our members are not PDGA members and are not into tournaments. At the Jericho Ice Bowl out of the 25 members that played and turned in a tag, less than half of them are PDGA members.

I know Pre reg is closed but is there any way we can be put on a list so we have a spot secured for tomorrow? 

I don't really wanna make the trip just to be turned down after making the drive out there.

Thanks.

Results are up http://www.pdga.com/tournament-results?TournID=9988


Just want to thank everyone for showing up to my first tourney! When I picked the beginning of March I knew it was gonna be a hit or miss date with the weather. I had planned on maybe 50-60 players, but when all was said and done 91 disc golfers came out to play for the day! I guess the itch was on. the weather was great and so was the company, so thank all of you once again for coming out!
I had a blast and cannot wait to throw my next one. I know there were a few bumps in the road, but as they say hindsight is 20/20, so some lessons were learned for next time. If anyone has any constructive criticism, I would love to hear it . I know I cannot think of everything, and I want to provide you with the best tournaments I can, so please let me know.

There are a lot of people I want to thank as well for making this happen: Dave Y for having the plastic for the day, Starbucks for the coffee, Gorilla Boy for the coupons, ABC Discs and Dan Pastore for the minis, Discontinuum for the fly pads, Tom M. for hauling them, Scott Pitner for the basket and leader board, Fox Valley for the basket and leader board,Mike K. for running the leader boards,  Jon Boster for taking registrations, all of those that helped set up/ and tear down, those that helped with adding scores and making up scorecards, those that handed out bag tags for the day, and anyone else I may have missed.

I do have a few tags that people left from some different clubs. If you did not get your tag or left before they were handed out, let me know I may have it. I have tag #86 from J Town.
